I confess I am feeling a bit burnt out, but here are my thoughts for today. First, is anyone else coming? =) It has been rather sparse lately.
I really want to step up the level of organization a little bit. I confess, I am not 100% confident in this area, but I figure I’ll learn on the job. One thing I want to get doing is to have a group of volunteers who agree and commit to trading off the responsibility of attending the Board Meetings, at least until the end of the Public Comment section (usually near the beginning of the meeting). The idea is that we will have consistent messages to deliver to the Board. So obviously, we need to figure out 1) what those messages are and 2) who is willing to deliver it. Of course, I count myself as a volunteer but I don’t want to be on the hook for every single Board Meeting. Besides, sharing is so much fun.
Even if you are the kind of person that has never been to a Board Meeting or feel totally intimidated, I would be willing to walk you through the motions (literally). Could be a learning experience.
